‘Corn Moon’ to hang full tonight; ushers in harvest season

Let’s talk stargazing! At approximately 12:22 a.m. Wednesday morning, the moon is going to show orange and yellow in the sky – bright, clear, and full. This month’s full moon is commonly known as the ‘Corn Moon’ – as it lines up with the signal Native American’s used to use to tell them it was time to harvest their corn. 

Meteorologist Molly Peters says the viewing conditions should be close to optimal. 


Peters says there is one concern for complete viewing tonight – though it doesn’t worry her too much.


The next full moon opportunity will be in exactly a month – for the ever-popular ‘Harvest Moon’ that will dazzle the skies on October 1st.
